Homemade Peanut Butter Cups
When I was a little girl, my grandma would, on Easter and Christmas, make homemade peanut butter cups. I lived for the chocolate bunnies and trees and whatever else she would make. Seriously. Lived for them.
Now, I'm a fan of the store bought PB cups as well, and in my youth, was known to eat dozen upon dozen of the miniatures.
Nothing beats making your own though. Nothing is faster and tastier either.
What you'll need:
In a mixing bowl, add equal parts peanut butter and powdered sugar. Mix thoroughly until incorporated. If the PB is still sticky to your touch, add a little bit more sugar. You don't want the PB stick at all.
Next, melt some chocolate.
While you're melting chocolate, get your molds, paper cups, whatever your going to use ready.
When the chocolate is melted, pour a little bit into the base of your container. next, add a hunk of PB sweetness then cover with chocolate.
Refrigerate to set.
